Abstract:

In order to address the rapidly-evolving area of HIT and its intersection with quality and outcomes, NQF initiated a project to develop a set of recommendations around the measurement of HIT-related safety issues. A multi-stakeholder committee (the HIT Safety Committee) was convened to provide input and direction on the development of a conceptual framework for analyzing measures of safety in health IT and to identify priority measurement areas with the greatest potential for both improving the safety of HIT and using HIT to improve patient safety.
